HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is being held in Hartford Saturday.

Registration for the event, which is in its 24th year, opens at 7 a.m. with the race stepping off at 9 a.m.

The Race for the Cure is one of the biggest fundraising and education events for breast cancer.  Each year more than 140 events are held around the world bringing together over one million people to take part in the fight against breast cancer.
